The Kingdom of Dou Boux is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Charles V with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 8.748 billion Dou Bouxians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Bouxiana. The average income tax rate is 80.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Dou Bouxian economy, worth 967 trillion Dou Bouxian Pounds a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 110,606 Dou Bouxian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Charles V makes and breaks shaky peace deals in 140 characters or less, cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and international terrorists often get their weapons supply in Dou Boux. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dou Boux's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Dou Boux is ranked 36,161st in the world and 11th in The Crown Federation of Recon for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 133.63 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
